Blaq Poet – Tha Blaqprint. I always enjoy it when I get a chance to check out an album that I’ve been anticipating and waiting to hear, and in the case of Blaq Poet’s second album Tha Blaqprint, it fits that category. Even though this is only the Queensbridge native’s second album, he’s not a new figure in the rap game. As a matter of fact Blaq Poet has been around since the late 80’s when he was dropping lyrical bombs on KRS-One ( Beat You Down ) during the infamous bridge wars
A veteran of the old-school and alum of two now-defunct '90s crews (PHD and Screwball), Queensbridge native Blaq Poet has earned his stripes as one of the most furious rhyme-spitters in New York. A thriving creative partnership with the legendary DJ Premier has made Poet the flagship artist of Primo's own Year Round label, through which the pair have been releasing singles since 2003. Said partnership comes up big on Poet's second official solo LP, Tha Blaqprint, an engrossing street-hop tour de force from start to finish.
